GeoProMining, which is exploiting the Sotk mine of Armenia, is in forced idleness since the Armed Forces of Azerbaijan have closed the road leading to the mine and it is simply impossible to enter the territory. The mine won’t be exploited starting from today.
According to Armenian News-NEWS.am, the administration of GeoProMining and security officers are at the scene and are even trying to schedule a meeting with the Azerbaijani army general who said this is the current situation whether they want to or not.
There is no representative of Armenia’s relevant authorities. The company is trying to contact them, but there is no response from the government, the regional governor’s office, the police and the command of the corps of the Ministry of Defense.
The company’s administration and employees are currently facing the Armed Forces of Azerbaijan, and there is no representative from Armenia at all.
